RWBY (Ruby)

Recommended Posts

Just wondering has anyone else on the Board been following this webseries?

 

If so where do you think the starting points for the characters (especially the 4 main girls) should be? High Heroic? Low Superpowers?

 

Has anyone actually started to stat out the characters or monsters?

what series could you explain please?

It is a web-based anime like series that you can find on the Rooster Teeth website.  It has great fighting sequences and a very good plot/story.  Volume one of the first season is completed (and available on blue-ray or DVD) and we are waiting for word as to when volume 2 will start web-casting.

 

The name of the series comes from the names of the 4 main characters and also refers to a color associated with the same character, thus you get

 

R - Ruby Rose (red)

W - Weiss Schnee (White)

B - Blake Belladona (Black)

Y - Yang Xia Long (Yellow)

 

The initals are pronounced "Ruby"

 

The episodes so far are on Rooster Teeth's site as are a general trailer (being featured now) and 4 prequel trailers each one featuring one of the girls.  The were released in the same order as the name.

 

I highly recommed the series and am actually somewhat suprised that mine was the first post about the series considering the overlap between Anime/Animation fans and RPG people.

The characters from RWBY should all be in the Low-Superheroic Range (275-300 CP with 50-60 points worth of Complications); since they mostly are equipment-based this should be plenty of points (Since this is superheroic equipment STR Minimum is unnecessary).

 

Attacks in the campaign setting generally appear weak across the board (especially compared to their visual effects). So I would cap base damage at about 6 DCs (6d6 Normal & 2d6 Killing), and maximum damage (with Strength, Martial Arts, CSLs and the like) at 12 DCs. All characters should have at least 10 or more points of Resistant Protection with Nonpersistant or Costs Endurance to Maintain (in addition to whatever Armor they wear).

 

Monsters in the world likely have Damage Reduction and High BODY/STUN scores in lieu of having high DCV and Defenses
